of money but under the anything goes bush sec that all changed and i i think the obama administration so far has hardly done anything to roll back the damage. they value kinds of financial invasions that make the market less legitimate and less safe for you. all the changes that make the market faster and allow them to ping themselves for quick gains, they allow them to invade the margin ruls, bring double or triple etf selling power to appeal the original uptick rule that protected us from endless short selling. the sec improved or inacted these things that make the market more difficult when it gets bad and will do so again when we get that quick sharp decline. if you expect them to get your back, think again. if you think the exchanges want to maintain the legitimacy of the stock markets, not so much. they're not on your side. the bias is to allow lots of fast trades that each generate a fraction of a penny in profits. in the old days they were nonprofit organizations that can police themselves and now they're for profit public companies and their goal is to make money. nothing wrong

their prescription because that's how long barack obama will be here which means no change in any of the policies that people are interested for the next three-and-a-half years. change comes in their editorial only if the republicans take the white house and both houses of congress and maybe by 60 senators. it seems like they're saying this may never happen. i think that's a mistaken way of looking at this. there's an argument actually perversely because we said as difficult as this is, this is the right environment in which to try to change immigration bills because it has to be bipartisan. i understand that sounds a little odd right now because we're facing these great difficulties. senate democrats can't come to terms with the house republicans but at the end of the day on an issue like this, we would be better off if we had a bipartisan bill that would asome of the concerns ramesh is raising on border security and things like that while establishing a path to legalization and citizenship for immigrants. it can probably be better done with both parties having a stake of the action. >> you both
